Over a 21 year period of study, Peter lived in Mysore three to twelve months of each year; Immersing himself in the rich tradition of this ancient practice, guided by Guruji’s masterful hand. During this period he undertook Sanskrit studies with senior teacher Professor Sri Narayanacharya. Peter also received instruction from Guruji on the accompanying Pranayama for advanced asana practice.
Peter is one of only a few senior teachers worldwide who have been certified by Guruji to teach 4th series (advanced B series). Central to Peter’s approach is that he views each student as unique and approaches the teaching of Ashtanga as a form of physical therapy. Peter strictly observes that students learn the traditional sequences of asana – without skipping postures or modifications.
